Coriander Chicken Curry / Malli Kozhi Kuzhmabu – Restaurant Style Coriander Chicken Curry


I have come across Coriander chicken curry in many restaurants, I like to the core, but never thought of giving it a try. Usually we love to have outside food on weekends, just like that I love to relax without any work, but I feel like my kids don’t eat properly when we are out for food. This resulted me in trying out food in restaurant style but from the Madraasi Kitchen and so comes the Coriander Chicken Curry.

Coriander Chicken curry is one such finger licking curry that goes out well with steamed rice for lunch, idly, dosa, chapathi, parotta for dinner or breakfast. I have infused green paste which gives more flavor, wonderful aroma, lovely texture and beautiful color, the most important thing is it adds freshness to the curry. Let me share the recipe…

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #161 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
